- Shredded Cheese (I like the thin Mexican blend)
- Chopped White Onion
- Sliced Mushrooms
- Chopped Bell Pepper (yellow, red, or green)
- Chopped Asparagus
- Chopped Zucchini
- Start by getting all your veggies chopped and ready to go.
- Add a thin slice of butter into your omelette pan and put over medium heat.
- Once the butter is melted, add in your chopped onion. Make sure to remember to stir everything around throughout the cooking process, so everything gets cooked equally.
- After about a minute, add in your mushrooms. I love the flavor that mushrooms and onions produce, so I normally let that cook for about a minute.
- Then, add your zucchini, asparagus, and bell pepper. I like my veggies pretty well done, so I keep the heat on medium and cook them right before crisped.
- One the veggies are cooked, I add in several handfuls of spinach. Remember that the spinach will really shrink down once it’s cooked, so I always add quite a bit. When the spinach is in and everything is stirred up, I place a lid on the pan and lower the heat to medium low.
- While the spinach cooks down, mix up your eggs with a large splash of milk.
- After a minute, I open the lid and stir everything around and then place the lid back on for another minute.
- Once the spinach is done cooking, I mix up the veggies one last time before I pour in the egg and milk mixture. Then, I put the lid back on and let the omelette cook. The lid helps hold in that heat and moisture, which helps cook the omelette all the way through, as well as making it nice and fluffy. I’ve tried making an omelette without the lid and it takes way longer to cook and the side against the pan burns.
- When your omelette looks done (eggs fully cooked), add your cheese to one half of the circle and use a spatula to flip the other side over. Turn off your heat and use the spatula to slide it off the pan and onto your plate. I like to eat mine with Cholula and/or salsa for an extra kick of flavor. Enjoy!
Side Note: You can always add in other ingredients like bacon, ham, or tomatoes to change things up!
